My friend and I just wanted a wee night out in Dundee and came across this as a great cheap option to stay. The staff on reception were very welcoming and directed us to our room. We noticed quickly how quirky the decor and the layout of the building was however this was something we enjoyed. We were pleased to...

Very basic room, which was clean and tidy,decor was nice except for the plaster that fell off when we shut the big sash window, that looked down onto the square in front of the Caird hall. We didn't book a breakfast but there was a macDonald's round the corner for a macmuffin. Lots of steps up to our room, at...

That guy at the reception was CRAZY RUDE. I asked to see the room (50 quid a night) and He said to me that "They don't show the rooms before you pay" I've travelled in 5 continents and 56 countries...NEVER HEARD AN ANSWER LIKE THAT FROM AN HOSTEL. We arrived 25 minutes before the check in and he had us...

I found the hostel to be quiet and the beds very comfy. The room had a small kitchen sink and a kettle. We were up on the third...

My husband and l booked this hostel at the last minute and couldn't get a double bedroom but got a twin instead. We weren't too sure what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised. Ideal location (we had everything on our doorstep), security entry (which is reassuring given that it's in the centre of Dundee), reception area was very tidy...

We booked a double room en suite. Check in was swift and easy. A £5 deposit for your key card and off we headed up the stairs........a lot of stairs with no lift but it was worth the hike. We were in Room 31 at the top of the building. Our room was large and comfortable with a large en...

I loved the room, light and with a super high ceiling. The bed was OK too. Our room had no lockers for backpacks or valuables, but we also never felt any need for one as the place as a whole felt very safe and calm. I loved that there were many different rooms to hang out in! Besides the kitchen...
